Be Loud! 17 is the fourth annual benefit concert weekend for the Be Loud! Sophie Foundation, supporting adolescent and young adult cancer patients and their families at UNC Hospitals.
This year we have the one and only Drivin’ n Cryin’ headlining Friday night and several Pressure Boys have put together a crack band (featuring members of Ben Folds Five and The Veldt) to perform the Specials’ seminal first record and other selections from the 2 Tone era under the band name The Spressials. Here’s the full line up:
FRIDAY, AUGUST 25TH
Drivin’ n Cryin’
Boom Unit Brass Band
SATURDAY, AUGUST 27TH
Billy Warden & The Floating Children
Tickets are $40 for both nights or you can purchase individual night tickets–$25 for Friday and $20 for Saturday. Both shows are all ages. All proceeds go to benefit The Be Loud! Sophie Foundation. https://beloudsophie.org/
